Our CISA Certified Information Systems Auditor course provides the student with the knowledge and proficiency to prepare for the globally recognized CISA certification exam.

With a growing demand for professionals possessing IS audit, control and security skills, CISA has become the preferred certification program by individuals and organizations around the world. Many enterprises and government agencies increasingly recognize, require, and expect their IS and IT professionals to hold this certification. This course helps professionals gain the knowledge and skills to effectively leverage standards, manage vulnerabilities, ensure compliance, offer solutions, institute controls, and deliver value to their business.

CISA is to Audit what CPA and CA are to accounting. CISAs are recognized internationally as professionals with the knowledge, skills, experience and credibility to leverage standards, manage vulnerabilities, ensure compliance, offer solutions, institute controls and deliver value to the enterprise. CISA job practice analysis has been completed by ISACA. This analysis resulted in a new CISA job practice which reflects the vital and evolving responsibilities of IT auditors. The new CISA job practice was effective beginning with the CISA exam administration in June 2011. For purposes of these statements, the terms "enterprise" and "organization" or "organizational" are considered synonymous.
